Today I’m in sunny San Diego at the Romance Writers of America conference and unable to post to you live, but I will give you a brief idea of what we do, as I write this ahead of my departure.
It’s a week of meeting up with friends I usually see only online, having dinner with my editors, going to writing workshops during the day and nighttime is saved for parties. On Tuesday the plan is to take the trolley to join my Tule friends and publisher at historic Old Town San Diego. I am excited about walking through the history and seeing sights that had first inspired me to write westerns!
Wednesday morning is open and Tanya Hanson (my roomie) and I will be doing a touristy walk of the spectacular Marina. The afternoon is filled with the annual Writer’s for Life Literacy booksigning. Picture a room with 400 authors, ready and willing to sign books to benefit the worthy charity. I’ll be signing my Desire Twins for the Texan. After the signing, there’s an off-site party at an author’s home that we’ll attend as well.
By now, I am halfway to exhausted with a few more exciting things planned for the end of the week. Thursday means workshops, the Keynote Speaker luncheon and dinner with my two Harlequin editors. Afterward, the Desire editors are hosting a poolside cookie party for all of the Desire authors. (I hope the walking I do will offset the calories I intake—one can hope!) Friday means breakfast buffet with the gals from Petticoats and later that night I will be dressing up in Ralph Lauren for the always fabulous Harlequin party held in a ballroom at another magnificent hotel.
Saturday night I’m home and will need all of Sunday to recuperate!
If you follow me on Facebook you will probably see some of my fun pictures of these events. I hope you have a lovely rest of the week!! Just curious, have you ever been to San Diego? If not, what is your favorite historical spot?
